House. Circa late C15, remodelled in phases during C16 and C17. Cob rendered and partly rebuilt in course stone rubble and later patched in brick. Corrugated asbestos roof cladding over thatch (some original thatch survives), with gabled ends, north east gable coped and with remains of small finial. Stone axial and gable end stacks with later brick shafts. L-shaped on plan. Main front range of hall, through passage and low left (S) end, and a cross-wing at right (N) end consisting of 3 rooms. The whole building was originally open to the roof and heated from open hearth fires. The insertion of stacks and floors occured in phases but it appears that the hall's axial stack and possibly the hall chamber were formed while the low (S) end remained open to the roof with an open hearth fire. The low end's and possibly the cross-wing's gable end stacks and floors were installed later during the C16 or C17. The axial passage at the back of the hall was formed in the C18. 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 3 window east front; right hand gable has blind attic window and remains of small finial to coping. All C20 casements except for three on ground and first floor on left which are C19 2-light casements with glazing bars. 2 partly glazed doors on left, that to left of centre has chamfered stone jamb. Centre of front wall rebuilt in brick in C20. At rear various small C19 and C20 casements, C20 porch and brick rebuilding under eaves; projecting gable-ended wing on left. Interior: virtually unaltered since C19. Low end room-has axial partition, roughly cahmfered cross-beams and large gable end fire- place with chamfered cambered lintel with cyma stops. Hall has chamfered axial beam with straight cut stops and large fireplace with chamfered lintel. Panelled partition to axial passage at rear of hall. Two front rooms in cross-wing have unchamfered beams and west end room has chamfered cross-beam with cyma stops and fireplace with chamfered lintel and oven. Roof: 2 bays of hall have central cruck truss with tenoned collar, arched braces, struts, cruck blades joined by yoke at apex for square-set ridge-piece; large trenched purlins and curved wind-braces, all smoke blackened. Truss between hall and through passage is cruck with halved and lapped collar, and yoke for square-set ridgepiece which is carried over low end; pilaster infill smoke-blackened on low side. Two trusses over wing with collars halved and pegged to cruck blades which are joined at apex by large yokes for square-set ridgepiece; large trenched purlins and one curved wind-brace remains; all smoke-blackened; smoke-blackened thatch, rafters and battens survive at junction of the two roofs.
